Maci Bookout Opens Up About Baby #3 & Her Growing Family

Talk about a surprise! Maci Bookout recently learned that she's pregnant with baby number three, and to say it was unexpected is a bit of an understatement. The Teen Mom OG star recently opened up about how she found out she was expecting, and her plans for her family's future.


Talking to Us Weekly, Maci said that she was beyond shocked to find out that she was several months pregnant in January, just days after she and Taylor McKinney got engaged. They are already parents to 8-month-old Jayde, as well as Bentley, 7, Maci's son with ex Ryan Edwards.

"I was at the doctor, ironically, to get my birth control prescription refilled!" she shared about learning the news. She continued, "I laughed at her! I mean, she's the doctor that delivered Jayde, so I was like, 'Ha ha, that's a funny joke -- but it's not really that funny!' And she was like, 'No, seriously!' And I was like, 'Oh, okay -- well, give me 10 minutes to not freak out ... You're wrong. You've got the wrong results, you mixed them up.' But no, she was serious!"

The biggest shocker had to be that she was already four or five months along -- baby boy is due on May 30, less than a year after they welcomed Jayde.

Maci revealed that it wasn't just her and Taylor that were taken aback by the news. "Everyone is shocked," she said. "I mean, even we were completely speechless, and every time I shared the news with someone, I said, 'Okay, are you sitting down?' And then I said, 'Feel free to say 'holy s--t' or congratulations because both are fine.' Because that's pretty much how I've been the whole time!"

I think that sounds about right. Of course a baby is a blessing, but when you aren't planning on a major life change like this -- especially with so much else going on in your life -- it can be a little overwhelming.

Even though their family is growing rapidly, Maci and Taylor say that it won't affect their wedding plans. They still plan to tie the knot next October. They'll just have one more guest than they thought they would!

As for expanding their family beyond a third child, Maci confessed that that's "absolutely" not in the stars for them. She explained, "There are going to be some permanent birth control decisions made immediately after birth."

Hopefully she won't get another shocking announcement at her next appointment for birth control!
